Austin Chamber Music Festival presents Pacifica Quartet
The Austin Chamber Music Festival continues with the Grammy-winning Pacifica Quartet, who will be on hand for a pre-concert talk followed by a performance of Shostakovich's String Quartet No. 2.
Recognized for its virtuosity, exuberant performance style, and often-daring repertory choices, over the past 25 years the Pacifica Quartet has achieved international recognition as one of the finest chamber ensembles performing today. Named the quartet-in-residence at Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music in March 2012, the Pacifica was previously the quartet-in-residence at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and received a Grammy Award for Best Chamber Music Performance. In 2017, the Pacifica Quartet was appointed to lead the Center for Advanced Quartet Studies at the Aspen Music Festival and School.
